Longest Earthquake Swarm Yellowstone

« on: February 03, 2010, 09:39:18 PM »

The current earthquake swarm at Yellowstone can now be called the longest and most eventful in modern history. I include the following snapshot from today's reports:

While the debate is raging whether the intensity of these quakes is being under-reported, the more important issue of depth of these quakes is being ignored. They have been closer and closer to the surface. Starting at about 15 kilometers deep a few weeks ago to an average of 5 kilometers deep today. From 10 kilometers deep on 1/27 to 5 kilometers deep today:

Because the resistance to pressure decreases as with the amount of mass between the the magma and the earth's surface, it would be safe to project an eruption in a matter of days, or a few weeks. What remains to be seen is the nature of this eruption and whether or not it will be localized or Biblical in proportion. Maybe something in between.

In the dream/vision that I had of the event, it seemed that the eruption was major, but not cataclysmic, An ash cone was built up that was 3-5 times larger than Mt. Saint Helens. What struck me the most is the amount of ash in the air and the effect it had on our climate in the US. Winter was extended into spring and massive amounts of precipitation dropped mammoth amounts of snow in the Rocky mountain states and rain elsewhere.

One thing I would definitely recommend is buying painters "masks" to filter out the ash and have enough food on hand for a few weeks. A water purifier and some bottled water would not be a bad idea. Your hot water heater can serve as an emergency source of water as well. Bleach can be used to kill bacteria in the water (a few drops, not the whole bottle).

A snow shovel to clear driveways and walking areas is also not a bad idea

In my dream/vision, no dates were given, all I saw was the event. To read my previous article on Yellowstone and the Book of Revelation, click here
